LOGAN’S LANDING HALLOWEEN EVENT CANCELLED

Friday, October 2nd, 2020

Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Logan’s Landing has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Downtown Spooktacular event.

Logan’s Landing Executive Director Becki Harris stated “Each year, we look forward to coordinating an afternoon of trick-or-treating at participating downtown businesses. This event draws a huge crowd each year, and we hate to disappoint the kids. But after careful consideration, we have decided that it is in the best interest of the health and safety of our community to cancel. We feel it is important for us to abide by the COVID-19 restrictions and do our part to help bring the virus under control.”

If you have any additional questions, please contact Becki Harris at (574) 722-9345 or by email at lldirector@loganslanding.com. Thank you again for your understanding, and stay safe as we continue to navigate through COVID-19.

Logan’s Landing Needs Your Help

Tuesday, August 11th, 2020

Logan’s Landing is pleased that we continue to hear good things about downtown Logansport: the beautiful pink flowers, the growing amount of public art, the new businesses and restaurants that have continued to open as we start to return to normal after COVID.

Since 1996, our mission has always been to make Logansport’s downtown district an exceptionally attractive, lively, and enjoyable place to be. We work toward this goal through numerous programs and projects, and while we have made progress over the years, there is still a lot of work to do.  And while it’s wonderful to hear compliments, the reality is that we also need money to continue our work.

Donations of any size are greatly appreciated.  Just click the “Donate” button in the list on the left to donate online via credit card or PayPal, or mail your check to PO Box 473, Logansport IN 46947. With your help, we will continue our programs and projects to improve and preserve Logansport’s downtown district.

We would like to thank all of those who ordered shortcake from us — proceeds enable Logan’s Landing’s to continue our programs and projects to improve and preserve Logansport’s downtown district. Special thanks to event co-chairs Echo Cottrell and Challi Pullen, to all of our volunteers who helped with this modified event, to Vibrant Events for the delicious strawberries and cake, and to Martin’s Supermarket for the grocery sacks for deliveries.

We look forward to returning to our traditional Celebrate Logansport event format next year, and hope to see everyone there!
